Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem

Prince of Asturias Award for Concord 2007

"I am deeply moved, and very proud, that Yad Vashem has been honored with the Prince of Asturias Award for Concord. My sincere appreciation goes to the Prince of Asturias Foundation for this singular honour. This prestigious international award recognizes that the memory of the Holocaust -the systematic murder of the Jews that took place in the heart of Europe- has profound significance for the coexistence of the family of nations, today, and through the ages. The Prince of Asturias Award inspires us to continue in our efforts to build a better future through our confrontation with the past, and emphasizes the awesome responsibility that Yad Vashem bears. As the generation of the witnesses to these horrors dwindles, Yad Vashem will continue to transform their memory into building blocks for a better world- one characterized by tolerance and mutual respect amongst all peoples."

Avner Shalev
Chairman of Yad Vashem
